Paul Jackson quits ITV

From Leigh Holmwood for Media Guardian:
ITV's director of entertainment and comedy, Paul Jackson, the man behind shows such as Britain's Got Talent and Benidorm, has quit the broadcaster...

Jackson, who joined ITV in February 2006 under its previous director of programmes, Simon Shaps, will leave the broadcaster at the end of the year and is expected to return to production.

ITV said no decision had made on his successor - or even if he would be replaced.

    No great loss! What did he achieve? The only successes on his watch were inherited (eg X Factor, I'm a Celebrity) with the one exception of Benidorm. apart from that Zilch! Time he retired - he's long past it.
